Both academically rigorous and applied, this programme prepares students for successful careers as professional economists. Students take theory-based courses in micro- and macroeconomics, econometrics, asset pricing, and corporate finance, as well as applied courses in different fields of economics and finance.
Graduates receive a degree from HSE and an official letter of validation from LSE certifying that the completed programme meets international standards. They go onto careers working for top international financial institutions, technology companies, and consulting firms, or enter doctoral programmes in economics or finance at the world’s best universities.
HSE graduates are highly sought after in the labour market. Our students receive job offers from the top financial institutions in Russia and abroad, including Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, HSBC, UBS, Credit Suisse, Barclays, Citigroup, Sberbank CIB (Troika Dialog), VTB Capital, Central Bank of Russia, VTB24, International Finance Corporation, etc. Some graduates work in the real sector (Lukoil, Megafon), for strategic consultancies (McKinsey, Olivier Wyman), or continue their education at the best PhD programmes in economics or finance (LSE, University of Minnesota, Bocconi, Toulouse School of Economics, St.-Gallen).
Employment is possible in the second semester of the second year.
